Quality Management Program Goals

Health Partners Plans (HPP) has a quality management program to make sure that our members receive safe and effective clinical care that is timely and patient centered. Throughout the year, HPP monitors the delivery of health care to members and annually evaluates the entire program to determine if goals were met and define goals for the year ahead.

A sample of 2020 accomplishments:

  • HPP maintained accreditation status with the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) and NCQA Multicultural Health Care recognition
  • Met with all Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) practice groups quarterly to review quality data improvement strategies
  • Continued provider monitoring to address quality of care issues and complaints
  • Continued a multidisciplinary workgroup for the Centers of Excellence (COE) for Opioid Used Disorder (OUD)
  • Timely submission of all regulatory required programs such as HEDIS, EQR, the process improvement plans, Patient Centered Medical Home (PCMH), Community Based Care Management (CBCM) and technical responses to the PA state contracted auditor, IPRO
  • Implemented a work from home strategy to maintain safety of staff while providing services to our members
